Windows 10: Wi-Fi Adapter not visible in Network Connections

    Wi-Fi Adapter not visible in Network Connections

    I've encountered a problem with my Wireless connection as I think the driver got corrupted when Windows 10's auto update tried updating it but failed. The result was me being unable to "Enable" the adapter in Network and Sharing Centre/Network Adapters. It kept on saying Enabling>Enabled but remained disabled. I've tried installing Wireless drivers for my adapter but it didn't change a thing. So I thought maybe I could uninstall the device and reinstall instead of installing over it. Right now it is installed as my Device Manager states but it's not showing under Network Adapters.

    Qualcomm Atheros Communications Inc. driver update for Qualcomm Atheros AR9485WB-EG Wireless Network Adapter
    Failed to install on 23-09-15
    Am I supposed to configure something with the driver for it to appear under Network Adapters or install something else?

    My wifi adapter is a Qualcomm Atheros AR9485WB-EG

    I have fixed this by doing a restore from the System Restore Point that was made before Windows updated automatically. Though I would still like to know if it could be fixed without using a restore point.
